Web interface down, barely routing, dns failures, etc
Came home today to a pfsense machine that I can ssh into, but web interface is down. I can ping by IP from hosts inside the network to internet hosts by IP, and sometimes by DNS, so the pfsense machine is routing, at least a little. Have done several reboots, still no web interface. The shell hangs sometimes, although top shows a very low sysload. I can ping the firewall, and it always comes back up after I reboot. Still intermittent internet traffic at best, and no web interface to see what is going on.
Anything immediately come to mind? I am going to be hooking up a kb/monitor shortly.
Sounds like either your pfsense is seriously hosed or the computer you are using to access it is. Not sure if a switch could cause this, but I'd direct connect to the pfsense to test.
